PRESS RELEASE — LONDON, AUSTIN, TEXAS — Fast Company today announced that Blue Prism (AIM: PRSM) has been named to its first Best Workplaces for Innovators list, honoring businesses and organizations that demonstrate a deep commitment to encouraging innovation at all levels.
Developed in collaboration with Accenture, the 2019 Best Workplaces for Innovators showcases 50 winners from a variety of industries, including biotech, consumer packaged goods, financial services, cybersecurity, and engineering. Working together, Fast Company editors and Accenture researchers scored all 362 applications, and a panel of eight eminent judges reviewed and endorsed the top 50 companies. The 2019 awards feature workplaces from around the world, and 8 of the honorees are based outside the U.S.
Blue Prism has pioneered developments in Robotic Process Automation (RPA) software for more than a decade. The company’s connected-RPA platform provides enterprises with an intelligent digital workforce (software robots) capable of self-learning and continuous improvement, empowering users to intelligently automate billions of transactions while returning hundreds of millions of hours of work back into the business—freeing up employees to do more. By pairing digital workers with a nimble, up-skilled workforce, businesses can invent, design and swiftly develop new disruptive services.
“Innovation and disruption have always been part of our DNA,” says Dave Moss, Co-founder, and CTO of Blue Prism. “We are tirelessly working to make our digital workforce the catalyst that enables organizations to unleash the full creative and productive potential of their employees. We’re honored to be recognized as one of Fast Company’s Best Workplaces for Innovators and thrilled to see the work of our talented employees and partners recognized among such elite companies.”
Blue Prism continues to push the boundaries of intelligent automation and innovation. The company recently announced its acquisition of Thoughtonomy, which will see Blue Prism’s connected-RPA platform distributed and supported as a turnkey SaaS offering, helping accelerate the deployment of digital workers across vertical markets and into mid-tier enterprises worldwide.
“Other titles catalog perquisites and benefits. Fast Company seeks to highlight workplaces that attract and retain the best talent by creating environments where employees are empowered to put forth bold ideas, engage in radical experiments, and even fail, in the name of innovation,” says Stephanie Mehta, editor-in-chief of Fast Company.
